Pressure horns: PPCB tightens noose around violators 28.7.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Patiala, July 27 Tightening the noose around illegally installed pressure horns on vehicles, the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) has removed such horns from around 2,000 buses in past 10 days, besides challaning these vehicles. Divulging the details, PPCB Chairman Kahan Singh Pannu today said noise pollution created by buses and other commercial vehicles had turned into irritating phenomena for commuters, besides being a major psychological health hazard.

Pannu said as these pressure horns were against the law, the PPCB had advised all bus owners, including the managing directors of state-owned transport corporations, to remove all such pressure horns immediately.

Dhanushkodi reborn: PM unveils new NH to mainland 28.7.2017
Rameswaram: Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicating to the nation on Thursday the now-renewed missing link of 9.5 km stretch of the National Highway (NH-49, now new NH 87), that will link the sacred spot of Dhanushkodi, at the Southeastern tip of this pilgrim-island of Rameswaram, is a matter of joy for the locals. A new beginning unfolds from this auspicious Tamil month of "Aadi", as this vital infrastructure link holds the key for the rejuvenation of this once flourishing coastal town. Nature"s fury had blown it into smithereens, as a super cyclonic storm on the night of December 23, 1964, had in one stroke not only washed away over 300 train passengers but also reduced Dhanushkodi to rubble. The geography of the epic Ramayana would be incomplete without Dhanushkodi, said to be shaped like Rama"s bow itself, and the nearby ancient Shiva temple in Rameswaram where Lord Ram, on retrieving Seetha after vanquishing the Lankan King Ravanna performed a purification ritual on way back ...

Inadequate regulations help adulteration thrive 28.7.2017
Hyderabad: Adulteration of food items is becoming a major racket with no rigorous punishment in place legally. The IPC does not have any direct section to penalise the accused arrested in adulteration of substance. Such case are incorporated into Section 420 (cheating), 336 (willful negligence), 273 (sale of noxious food or drink) of the IPC. Bailable cases booked against adulteration are forwarded to  the local magistrate who in turn directs the police to issue warning under Section 41(A), but there is no less judicial remand. The only way the accused can be dragged to jail is if he or she is a regular offender. The law, however, requires that three cases need to be booked against the accused to implicate them under Prevention Detention Act.  Sauce Adulteration In the recent adulterated case involving production and sale of oil  exposed at RK Puram, where tons of pig"s fat oil was confiscated, the accused, Mithilesh Kumar, was arrested by Rachakonda police. The accused, however, was ...

China won’t go for an all out war, says ex-Army officer 28.7.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Jalandhar, July 27 Having served with the Army at the Indo-China border for seven years and remained India’s Defence attache in China for three years, Major General (retd) GG Dwivedi is of the strong view that China is just trying to browbeat India and that it will not go for an all out war. Being the co-author of a book on Indo-China war and knowing the Chinese psyche and political scenario well, Maj Gen Dwivedi cites five reasons, “The stability of China depends on economy. Chinese President Xi Jinping came to power on an assurance of providing a prosperous and powerful environment which he has to maintain. A war can destabilise the Chinese government and if the communists he represents go out of power, the changeover will be violent and Xi might even be jailed. China is only a bully. It won’t act as the Communist Party has even announced its annual congress in October. Also, the main issue as of now is over constructing 4 to 5 km of road. Hell won’t break loose if this road is not ...

Privacy can't be fundamental right, says Centre 28.7.2017

New Delhi: Attorney General K.K. Venugopal on Thursday asserted in the Supreme Court that “informational privacy” can never be a fundamental right.

The AG made this submission before a nine-judge Constitution bench hearing the issue whether right to privacy is a fundamental right or not. When the court told the AG that America lagged behind Europe in protecting informational privacy, the AG said the right to privacy could not be determined without taking into account cultural and environmental norms, which he held the US courts had done, and that India should not imitate foreign jurisprudence.
